Nonna Betta - Cucina Kosher Tips (1)

Nonna Betta - Cucina Kosher: Don't miss The "REAL JEWISH ARTICHOKES"!!!!

Nonna Betta is a proper Jewish-Roman restaurant serving traditional and certified Kosher Food:
the owner's family has lived in the ghetto for numerous generations and "Betta" really was his "Nonna", his grandmother. Nonna betta was a real old "monarca", the ancient Jewish-roman term for a woman skilled at house-keeping and endowed with a despotic and inflexible disposition, especially in the Kitchen.
Nonna Betta serves traditional Jewish-roman food, prepared with the freshest ingredients following the original recipes of lore with: platters of fried mixed vegetables, anchovies and endive pie, codfish with onions and tomatoes, fresh pasta with chicory and dried fish-roe dressing and, of course, the famed deep-fried artichokes alla giudia, together with a large choice of middle-eastern dishes (the chef is a Coptic Christian from Egypt).
The place is homey and full character, its walls decorated with colourful reproductions of paintings representing the ghetto as it was before being taken down at the end of the 19th century.
The atmosphere is pleasanta and peaceful, with the chance to hear old stories about the ghetto and always someone more than willing to answer any of our guest's queries regarding Jewish culture and religion in general, and the traditions of the jews of Rome in particular. Traditions that go back 2000 years!!!
